Neck brace helps support the weight of your head giving the soft tissues in your neck the ability to heal. Neck supports can help relieve pain and provide comfortable support from mild neck injuries such as whiplash, sprains or neck strain. A good neck support can also realign the vertebrae and improve posture.
Neck braces can be made of soft wraparound collar or be stiff braces with pads with hard plastic. Your doctor will give you recommendations on the type of neck brace you should use based on the severity of your injury and how long you’ll need to wear it.
